Location Empa Structures Client
Paarl, Western Cape Val De Vie Investments

Through this contract, the developer wishes to provide access to Val de Vie Development via the R45 Provincial Road by building a bridge over the Berg River. The bridge consists of two equal 35m continuous spans with a central pier. The super structure consists of 18 precast pre-stressed beams with a reinforced concrete deck. Precast panels were hung on the sides of the bridge deck as an aesthetic finish, giving it the appearance of a low arch structure. The bridge deck was widened over the central pier to form “viewing coves” for side walk users. Abutments were stone cladded for aesthetic purposes.
